Penske Commercial Vehicles and its subsidiary Dennis Eagle showed its true colours with six specially liveries to raise awareness for charity.

Penske’s Western Sydney dealer and Blacktown City Council prepared the Elite 2 trucks with their unique designs for Amy Gillett Foundation, the Black Dog Institute, Keep NSW Beautiful, CancerCouncil NSW, Diabetes NSW & ACT and Redkite and paraded them at the local festival last weekend.

In 2015, Penske Commercial Vehicles and its local dealer in Sydney also supplied Blacktown City Council with the same model of truck as part of a separate contract, with the council adorning the vehicle in a White Ribbon livery.

“The feedback we received about the first truck delivered to the Blacktown City Council was very positive, and that gave us an opportunity to work with our Sydney dealer on the supply of these six units,” said Penske’s general manager of sales, Mark Mello.

“The council serves a huge resident base making truck attributes such as fuel efficiency, driver comfort and driver safety paramount.

“The Elite 2 range has led the way in the waste collection market with state‐of‐the‐art features, an ongoing improvement process and partnerships with body suppliers that have all resulted in a fantastic overall package that delivers outstanding performance in the urban environment.

“Both Penske Commercial Vehicles and our Sydney dealer have worked with the council over a few years now to provide the best value for money and low whole‐of‐life costs to the people of Blacktown, as well as supporting this council initiative promoting such important charities in the community.”

The Elite 2 is a popular choice for refuse collection with its single low‐step entry, class‐leading compact wheel base, stand‐up walk‐through cab and all-round disc brakes.
